They do the job!

I am very happy with these gavage needles. They are sturdy and well-made, and I especially like the ball tip, as opposed to the teardrop style. I use these for cockatiels, and my teardrop-tipped needles are slightly larger and sometimes more difficult to use with a smaller bird.
I’ve been searching for ball tip needles for years and I’m so happy to know where I can go should I need to purchase more.

Epithelial Cell Isolation from Intestines

Our lab cuts the tip of the plastic oral gavage needles and uses them to flush out the poop from the intestines of mice. We then obtain the intestinal tissue and isolate single epithelial cells for FACS sorting. These needles work great for our needs.

Oral gavage for birds

Here is a short excerpt from the article 

Preparation:

  • All the equipment and consumables required should be prepared and placed ready for use before the bird is removed from its accommodation.
  • A clean, sterilised tube should be used for each individual bird.
  • Check that the tube is patent (not blocked) before use; with transparent tubes a visual inspection can be used.
  • Prepare a syringe with the required medication, fluids or formula.
  • Connect a flexible feeding tube (for example: a urinary catheter, giving set, lamb feeding tube or stainless steel feeding needle) firmly to the syringe ensuring that the tube is of a type that will not cause damage to the mucosa, with a smooth and rounded end.
    • Note that the end of the syringe must fit the tube used, e.g. a catheter-tipped syringe is required to fit a lamb feeding tube. (B13.15.w10)
  • If tube feeding or giving fluids, check the temperature of the feed/fluids (should be warm but not too hot) - squirt a small amount onto your wrist to check the temperature. (D9)
  • Fluids may be warmed by placing them in hot water until they are just warm to the touch (100°F/38°C). (D135.5.w5)
  • Empty the tube of air by expelling a little fluid from the syringe. (D135.5.w5)
